Hi Wickey
Checked it on my 7800.Works good,but the computer opponent seems to be too easy to beat.
greetings Walter


Thanks for testing! Now that the game is pretty much done, I will solve the AI problem (hopefully). There was no screen rolling was there?

Hi Wickey
The screen was ok;no screen rolling or so.....
greetings Walter

Yea, I never got around to fixing it in that version, I was distracted by learning how to make a 48 pixel sprite, thus making the high-res title screen :cool: Thanks again for testing.

I have included sound effects when the ball hits the wall and players. Hopefully in the next version I can fix the AI problem. Did not have time to make a PAL version of this.

The NTSC version is harder, so I will try to tune up the pal version.

This game has come along nicely, now it starts to be fun to play! :thumbsup:

IMO a few more variations like a fast mode or being able to play with smaller paddles would be good.

Good idea.

Left Difficulty A = small paddles B = large paddles :cool:

Here is the last NTSC version that I am posting. I will not post the final version because I dont want people to make pirate carts. There are also several dummy routines and dummy variables, so hopefully there will be no reverse engineering.

There is no longer joystick support, I perfected my paddle reading routine and adapted it to the kernel, so now there is accurate paddle support (tested on real hardware, works fine). I am still going to fine tune the PAL AI, so I am not going to post a PAL version of this until I do so.

Sorry, the carts are sold out, but I am putting #29 (out of 30) on ebay soon, it is the boxed NTSC version. I will try to let you know when I do so.
